Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus “Do Something,” Ranked Most Charitable Celebrities

Her album “Red” has set fire to the Billboard charts–consistently ranking near the top of the charts since its release this October–but Taylor Swift is not keeping all the wealth for herself. DoSomething.org ranks the singer-songwriter as the most charitable celebrity.

Swift, whose album will lead the final pre-Christmas Billboard 200, sits atop the website’s “Top 20 Celebs Gone Good” of 2012.

“TSwift is our number one celeb gone good,” writes DoSomething. “She’s had quite a year being the YOUNGEST person to ever receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for her charity work. The 23-year-old also donated 4 million (the largest sum yet!) to the Country Hall of Fame Museum. Not to mention, her tremendous work for young people battling cancer among many others.”

Miley Cyrus placed second, besting a list that included Channing Tatum, Justin Bieber, LeBron James and Ben Affleck.
